About Security B-Sides 

Launched in mid-2009, Security B-Sides is a community-driven event built for and by information security community members. The goal is to expand the spectrum of conversation beyond the traditional confines of space and time. It creates opportunities for individuals to both present and participate in an intimate atmosphere that encourages collaboration. . It is where conversations for the next-big-thing are happening and the Security B-Sides London team is bringing this back to London.


The volunteers for Security B-Sides London were inspired by the framework of the original Security B-Sides event in the USA, and have worked together to bring this to the UK. Security B-Sides events are free, community events organised by local individuals, with the expressed goal of enabling a platform for information dissemination.
